6:04 am
yes votes to 13 no's... barely getting the two-thirds vote required. a lot of issues held up the vote including a controversial n-dot roads report that suggested possibly giving preference to construction projects near the stadium over other work around the valley. those who voted for the stadium say it will help generate thousands of jobs... and give u-n-l-v a new home to play football: ((len jessup // unlv president: this is huge, this is probably one of most difficult fundamental building blocks that we need to have put in place for a top-tier plan so i'm estatic.)) >> the rebels will play in the state of the art nearly two billion-dollar stadium. no other college team in the country can claim that. tax-payers will pay for nearly 40-percent of the stadium... but won't see any of the profits. some lawmakers feel the final decision to approve the stadium bill was rushed and will have ramifications at the polls next month when voters decide whether or not to re-elect many assembly- members back into office.
